Remember the Children
Transmitted to me in a light beam that passed through the wall and into my mind. 
I could hear all the music and lyrics, which are suspended in eternity, within a microsecond.

Remember the children that ran in the field. They'd call home 'cause we were their shield.
Remember the laughter and life without fear. No one knew that destruction was near.

Disarm the bomb and throw it away or there’ll be nothing left for anyone to say;

no people, no homes, no flowers in the yard. Only echoes of life past on a world black and charred.

- Crescendo; Lead -

On the summit more than talks we should seek.
The world knows by now that they're all tongue and cheek.
No more playing games with all of our lives.
A wise man makes friends and for peace he strives.

But, even now, as we stand in His Light, all they see is who gets first strike.
Get off the high horse or the fate of the world is sealed.
But if we know you then your scars may have peeled.

Remember the children that ran in the field. If today they call home the hate may be healed. Remember the laughter and life without fear. No one knew that our chance may be here.

Star Lady
Think of it as an updated Song of songs

Mystery’s song in the moonlit night
I know I belong in your arms tonight
I have walked through the echoes of time
And through the haze waves have tossed my rhyme
*Then I knew a bright star would guide me through
How can we fall since this song is from me and you?
The Peace is True, Star Lady

Star Lady, where have you been?
I searched so long to find you my friend
Now we walk in the footsteps of dawn
To no other one would I ever belong

Star Lady how I’ve searched for you so
Before Dawn would break, I was sleepless you know
**I grew weary then until I let go
Then you came near to give me your glow
We are a new show
Star Lady, Star Lady

- Crescendo -

*Then I knew…
**I grew weary then…

Star Lady, where have you been?
I love you my friend.
Star Lady

Flame
The Blue-White Fire

Who knows the color of defeat? They’ve got their pay and they pave the city beat.
I know their part and it seems complete. But how can you fly when you’re racing the street?!

Too many doubts have surrounded me—too many wrongs for a right.
Nor have they sympathy, they just turn out the light, the Light!

There’s a fire in my life, setting Flames to the wind.
Wrap your Air around me and let our light begin to flame!

(Leads)

They show no respect or dignity. They’ve got their way in society.
They don’t know the way to liberty. And where will they hide when we are free?

You’ll never see me look down again. I’ve got a reason to fight.
When no money brings dreams to end and they think its right, its right?

There’s a fire in my life, setting flames to the wind.
Wrap your air around me and let our light begin to flame!

(Leads)

Well, there’s a fire in my life, setting flames to the wind.
Wrap your Air around me and let our light begin to flame,
To Flame!
